Tim Yoder is best known as the good-natured host of the Emmy Award winning Woodturning Workshop. In four years, he produced 65 episodes of woodturning projects and tips which are still seen nationwide on PBS. Currently he is hosting and producing Woodturning with Tim on YouTube which features over 200 videos, 105,000 subscribers and over 39 million views. Tim has also developed Tim’s Tools, a line of gauges, rulers and center finders for woodturners. In addition, he manufactures and sells the original articulated hollowing tool, the Elbo Tool. Tim has a knack for breaking down turning techniques in such a way that beginning and experienced turners can learn something new. He has many mantras such as ‘Sneak up on a bead’, ‘You can’t put wood back on’ and ‘You can’t learn from perfect…that is why you are watching me!’ That last phrase is what connects Tim to his viewers. He does not hide his mistakes. He embraces them and uses those ‘design modifications’ as a teaching opportunity.
